An Ofrenda Workshop
Time & Location
About the event
The Grief Series team will work with children and young people supported by Star Bereavement to create their own Ofrenda.
In Mexico, to celebrate Day of the Dead, people build ‘Ofrendas’ to remember friends, family and people of significance. Ofrendas are brightly coloured displays including tables filled with photographs, flowers, candles, food and significant objects. They are a central part of celebrating those we have loved and lost, from close family to our heroes from music or sport. Ofrendas are built in people’s homes, in schools, places of work, bars, restaurants and public squares. They range from simple and understated to vast and extravagant. You can place photographs that mean something to you on the Ofrenda whether that’s a picture of your Nan or an image of David Bowie.....it’s all allowed.
As part of creating offerings to go on the ofrenda we will provide activities that may include writing tasks, colouring in, mask making and the placing of significant objects and photographs - some of which we will invite the children to bring with them.
This is a private event for commissioned by Star Bereavement.
